UK long range weather forecast

There is a lot of uncertainty in this period, initially the UK will be in-between low pressure over the near continent trying to keep things unsettled and potentially thundery, and high pressure to the west or northwest which would settle things down. This likely lending itself to a period of rain or showers or even thunderstorms in places mainly in the south and east whilst more settled conditions to the northwest. Later into the period increasingly settled conditions more likely for most, though southern or eastern areas remain occasionally less settled with showers or rain though there will be some sunshine between times, the best of this in western parts. Temperatures are likely to be a little above average, but some large spatial differences are likely.

Updated:

There is nothing to suggest that conditions will be massively different to climatology at the end of the current month and though the first half of June. That said, both temperatures and rainfall are more-likely to be a little above average overall, with further rain or showers (possibly heavy/thundery at times) but also some spells of warm sunshine.
